On November 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln gave his famous Gettysburg Address speech where he stated "proposition that all men are created equal"; however, in the 21st century, we have to ask ourselves if we really are equal. Are people treated equally? Do we really have equal rights? Waubonsee offers several courses in sociology that deal with some of these very questions, covering topics such as the values, norms, and cultural patterns that organize everyday life; racial and ethnic relations; the dynamics of family patterns in our country today; gender roles; and social problems and deviant behaviors.
